  1. Is there a way to make the size of the tool panels larger for easier reading. I have attached a screenshot. I am showing just the Effects Panel, but you can see the text on the panel is really small and difficult to see, even with my readers on :-). Is there a way to zoom on the panels or make the displays larger?27-inch screen.
  2. How can I easily "mirror" or "reflect" an object in Affinity Designer? Also In Adobe Illustrator there are many Effects (Dropdown Menu) to choose from Adobe Illustrator > Effects > Warp > Arc How can I choose a certain Effect in Affinity Designer I want to Warp an object or grouped object to give it an Arc (curved) appearance ? Thx
  3. Hi, Is there a chance to add Grain to effects? I think about something like diffuse layer mode (it would be great too) but more customizable (i.e. size, density, shape, regularity etc.) Best, Greg
  4. I’d love to reproduce the effect from this photoshop tutorial! Any pointers? Cartoon Effect in Photoshop Tutorial
  5. Hallo, I want to add an outer glow to a text. Found a few resources saying that there is an outer and inner glow layer effect. However I cannot find these effects in the software. I searched in Layer - Live Filter Layers (german: "Neue Live-Filterebene") but could not find these filters. Where can I find these. Thanks in advance and regards - Ulrich
  6. Hi all, I am very new to Affinity Designer and am currently viewing this tutorial: At 1:17 they create an eclipse then apply the Gaussian blur to 100%. It reduces the image down to literally that.. a blur. However, when I follow the exact same steps this is what I receive: SEE ATTACHED. I am doing the exact same steps that they take. Any help?!
  7. Hi all I want to blur my mask. If I activate "Gaussian Blur" as Effect of an Adjustment Layer, it does not apply the effect to the mask. Checking "Preserve Alpha" has no effect either. HSL mask in attached image selected by Alt+Click on HSL Layer Greetings, Roland
  8. Unlike what happens when assigning a palette color to the filling of an object, if I assign a palette color to a colour overlay effect then I change the palette color, the objects with the assigned effect don’t change color. (Tested with Affinity Designer 1.6.0 on High Sierra)
  9. When an object style created using the effects panel is applied to text it is applied the the text as a single object. This has undesired effects with specular highlights, lights and bevels. in the attached image I created some artistic text and then below it I typed each letter as an individual object. In the gel text you can see how the top example which is a single typed word the highlights aren't right and the colours from additional lights added via the 3d effect are applied to the text as a whole. I the second gel text example you see how I wanted the style to look. I the cookie example the bevel looks all wrong in the top example and below again with each letter individually typed you see how the effect should look. Note for this report I am not worrying about the squashing of the bitmap fill as I believe that is another issue that has already been reported.
  10. When I copy the 'effects' from one layer to another layer it does NOT copy the absolute values, but instead a kind of relative values. See attached photos. The first layer has an 'outline effect' of 20px. When I copy this effect to a second layer, this layer has now an 'outline' of 38,7px. I would very much like the option to copy the effect in absolute values, independent of the size of the layer the effect is copy to.
  11. Hi guys, I just bought Affinity Designer, after reading reviews and watching a few tutorials on youtube, and I was very excited. I started using it, and I love the interface, the fact that it's extremely easy to use and intuitive, and everything was fine and dandy, until I added a few shapes and added effects to them (drop shadow, gradient overlay, outline). After adding 5-7 shapes, Affinity Designer became extremely slow. The lag between my action and what happened on the screen is extremely noticeable, and when I drag shapes there's a huge bleeding effect besides the delay of the movement. Right now, for me, it's unusable, is there a fix coming soon for this? Did anyone else experience this? I don't have an extremely strong system, but Photoshop runs pretty good on my machine, so I was expecting AD to run perfectly, based on the reviews I read. My system: Windows 7 64 bit RAM: 8GB Intel Core i5-4690, 3.50 GHz Nvidia Geforce GTX 750
  12. I have attached a PSD file that I do not believe is importing properly to Photo. I have a black backdrop layer, and a number of layers with curves with applied layer effects (to make it look like a yellow, glowing "ray"). When imported to Photo, the layers with the curves appear empty. I saw another post on importing curves, but that seemed focused on work paths, and I don't think that's what I have here. (Warning: I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to curves.) Any help appreciated. curves-problem-demo.psd
  13. Hi all, First time posting here, so I hope this is the appropriate place... I'm creating an image with multiple layers - I run a small theatre company and this image will be used to promote a touring show. It's a countryside scene with a group standing in the middle, and around the edge I have a black silhouette of leaves, branches, rushes, etc. to frame the picture. I've applied a light (1-2px) gaussian blur as a live filter to these silhouette layers in order to soften them and give a sense of depth. However, when I export the image, the gaussian blur is removed, and the leaves, etc. appear sharp again, as if I hadn't applied the blur. I tried rasterising the layer before exporting, but when I did, the blur was removed in the resulting pixel layer. I removed the live filter and tried applying the blur as an effect, but when I flatten or export the image it still gets removed. I tried applying the blur as a normal filter - the correct result shows when previewing and moving the slider, but when I hit apply the blur is removed again! I don't know if I'm missing something or whether this is actually a bug, but if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it! Other than this, I'm loving both Photo and Designer!
  14. Hi everyone, I was asked if in Affinity i can get a comparable effect like the Pattern overlay in the Photoshop Layereffects. We use Embedded PDF files in Architectural Plans, and often a good way of improoving the Look is just to make a pattrn overlay in the Layereffects of Photohop, when replace the embedded pfd file.. is there any idea to do something comparable in Affinity Photo ?
  15. I have a FH file that extensively uses the glow effect; I am wondering if AD can't open that? Another FH files without the effect appears to be able to open the file.
  16. Hello. The photographic tutorials are really excellent. It seems very difficult to match the range of especially 3D effects in AP with those available in Photoshop, especially things like the tags above. This might be due to different methodologies. Is this something still in development perhaps? Would it be possible to produce some tutorials about this feature for AP? Or in Designer for that matter. I have tried to apply methods used in the past with Photoshop learned through the Photoshop Wow Books, things similar to glass marbles for example, but that doesn't seem to apply. Neither in Photo nor Designer.
  17. Hi, in Affinity Designer, if I export in .pdf a project that contains a mask layer with effects (es. blur, shadow...), the resulting file doesn't show them. I tried all pdf export settings, without success. Exporting in other formats like .jpg works fine. I attach some images with settings I use and the exported file. Am I doing something wrong or is it a known bug? Thanks in advance!
  18. Hello everyone.I want to create a stand alone shadow but couldn't find a way to separate it from the base shape. Any one has a solution for this?
  19. In the Effects tab, it is not possible to type in a value in the Fill Opacity editbox. Clicking in it simply shows the drag/slider for modifying the fill opacity, but there's no option to type in the desired percentage. Since this is an edit box, the expectation here is that content can be typed in. If there is no intention of allowing a user to type into this edit box, then the edit box should be replaced with a read-only label (please don't do that, though!)..
  20. Green button is made of elements with default constraints and its effects behave normaly when grouped. Blue button is made of elements with custom constraints and the bottommost element crops its effect when grouped. It happens with all effects. I also noticed some issues with aligning shapes with custom constraints. Looks like constraints need more of dev's attention...
  21. Hi, I'm trying to create a shooting star effect that is similar to my avatar. This would include the strike through and the shiny star on the end. Please, can someone help or at least point me in the right direction if this is possible to create in AFD.
  22. What I mean? You know if you right klick a style you can only rename and delete, but it would be great if there would be an option that allowes you to say how you want the style to be transfered to your layer. If it only should add effects or only the properties... In my opinion you should be able to add more effects to a layer. This should make you able to duplicate the inner glow twice or other type of effects.
  23. Hi all. Is there an effects option that I'm missing for fonts? Like in Illustrator you can bloat, pucker, fish eye, etc. your font. I'm trying to achieve the attached. Sorry technical words are not coming to me at this moment.
  24. I've noticed some inconsistent behavior when changing parameter values from the keyboard compared to editing them with the slider. I've found this to be the case for Effects, but not for the Adjustments. When the slider is used, the canvas is instantly updated to reflect the chosen parameter values. However, sometimes I want to use the keyboard hotkeys CTRL or SHIFT + ARROW UP or DOWN as it gives a finer grained control in some situations. In this case the canvas is not updated right away until I leave the edit control.
  25. Could you add the ability to stack effects? For example I would like to add to a one shape two outer shadows but with different colours and options like opacity so that they "intertwine" one through another.
